Intermittent Issues

Joshua F., Newegg
29 October 2015
  • Pros: Board color scheme is nice. Built in audio quality is pretty good.
  • Cons: Not sure if it's just the luck of the draw, but my unit began to have issues right after the 3 year warranty ran out. Bought the motherboard in 2010 and began to have issues last year (2014). The motherboard tends to be stubborn when you try to boot it up after a shutdown. Sometimes it'll start u...

User Review

Donald F., Newegg
21 February 2014
  • Summary: this is a great mobo that allows of the builder to think outside the box. but the northbridge is super hot. you could fry an egg on it
  • Pros: this mobo rocks, it has beaucoup connectors and great features. it is a matx so it allows for someone to build a smaller system that still can pack a punch.
  • Cons: the northbride is scalding hot. can not figure out why. without a fan directly over it it will shut the pc down.

Asus, what did you do?!

Travis Piper, Amazon
14 October 2013
  • Summary: Bar non loved the board. But the northbridge throws off enormous amounts of heat! What went wrong? Not sure but I had top purchase a northbridge fan from a different series of board and had it on 100% speed.

Suprised at negative reviews

Mark S., Newegg
21 September 2013
  • Summary: For people who are having issues with this board, it just appears to need more voltage. Out of the box, my board rebooted and was unstable--just like the reviews I read previously.
  • Pros: Configurable, stable, high quality, and decent overclocking tools. Board seemed very high quality when I bought it and it still seems very high quality after three years.
  • Cons: Can't think of any. But out of sheer preference, it would be nice to add more voltage to the onboard fan controllers.

Dead All of them

Kelley L., Newegg
8 March 2013
  • Summary: Other notes to this, i thought it was my CPU at first, So i purchased a Brand new 1366 i7 920 and Borrowed my friends i990x Directly out of his machine. Well i lost out on a good chunk of money as a new i7 920 1366 ARE still expensive as heck even for a older tech.
  • Pros: Excellent when it worked for like 1 month from original purchase.
  • Cons: From day one all revisions of this motherboard has given me problems, nothing but PROBLEMS, they all broke down, first one sent back for a Advanced RMA, returned and Returned with a brand newboard, one problem with it, it has a CRP bug ( Asus CPU Parameter Recall) So i sent it Back ( and its cons...

BSOD

Michael t., Newegg
16 November 2012
  • Summary: I wish I would have returned it after day one. Also if you ever have to replace a board do not down grade yourself. Replaced a bricked EVGA x58 classified with the above board.
  • Pros: It has all the newer bells and whistles. I thought the motherboard would be a good temporary upgrade to keep my system going. .
  • Cons: I get random crashes all day. For the price and size of the board I would not recomend it. The disk has tons of tools that can only be used in a 32bit system why would you run 32 bit with this socket set???

Horrible Compatibility

Stuart M., Newegg
30 October 2012
  • Pros: Typical X58 board with added features, fits in mATX case thats it.
  • Cons: - Marvell 6.0 controller is glitched causes bsods and doesn't transfer much faster than stock intel sata 2.0 controllers. Drivers cause BSODs, ASUS doesn't update drivers or bios for their added gear, you have to go to a french 3rd party website to get drivers and firmware. - Memory compatibility...
